The future of transportation is still people

A Video Message from Dennis Santare, Proudfoot Managing Director, Americas, New Yorker, veteran, and proud MTA commuter

We see an exciting path laid out in front of the MTA and an incredible opportunity in the alignment of your six agencies. In our experience, to get the full benefits of consolidation it’s crucial to engage your people so they not only embrace change, but feel so invested in the outcome that they lead the change themselves. Only this ensures your hard-won results will be sustained.

In conversation with our Global CEO, Pamela Hackett, we agreed that nothing could be considered more essential to the story of New York than transportation. And we would like to be part of your journey. New Yorkers have always yearned for movement and finding new ways to move farther, faster, and more efficiently. Transportation lies at the heart of the New York experience. It’s how New Yorkers connect, it’s how they work and live, and it’s what brings them together.

Since opening your very first route along Broadway in 1827, New York City Transit has been a leader and innovator in urban transportation, admired by transit organizations across the world for nearly 200 years. But at Proudfoot, we think the best is yet to come.

I’d like to share more about how this different approach can accelerate and solidify the results from implementing the MTA’s Transformation Roadmap.
